All 3 tailwaters saw a bump in flows! Tuesday started the rise in flows. Its looking like we should see a plateau for the weekend as the reservoirs are filling up. Currently Pathfinder is at 95%, Alcova is at 98%, and Grey Reef Reservoir is at 94%. The warm weather this week has really accelerated the melting.
Grey Reef- 4000 cfs
Fremont- 1800 cfs
Miracle Mile- 4500 cfs
Our guides have been using a meat and potatoes rig. Red or purple San Juan worms, Reef Worms in red or purple, PSL leech patterns in brown, natural, or black, and emerger patterns such as RS2 foam post and Mayhem Midge. Rigs have been running anywhere between 4-6 ft weight to indicator, and 2 BBs or 1 3/0 for your split shot. Look for the slower moving water on the seams or fishing towards the banks. The big water years bring out some of the best fishing and an opportunity to catch a trout of a lifetime! For those of you who haven’t heard we added 3 new Hyde Skiffs to our rental fleet! So, if you don’t feel like hauling your boat around we have you covered!
